Sarah Dougher Awarded Fulbright Scholarship
Adjunct assistant professor in the department of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Sarah Dougher has been awarded a Fulbright Scholarship in Norway for the academic year 2014-15. Dougher teaches courses on girls’ studies, as well as on gender, race and popular music in the United States. She will continue this work through a special program in Norway called the Roving Scholars. The Fulbright Roving Scholar Program brings American teachers to Norway to spend an academic year travelling throughout the country giving presentations, seminars and lectures for teachers and students in lower and upper secondary schools. Thanks to generous support from the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research, the Rovers can offer their services to schools free of charge. This is a unique cross-cultural opportunity for Norwegian teachers to invite an American teacher into the classroom.
In addition to the Fulbright, Dougher is presenting at two academic conferences this spring:
Console-ing Passions: International Conference on Television, Video, Audio, New Media and Feminism. Columbia, MO. “Pink Shoelaces, Age and Sexuality: Dodie Stevens’ Performance on the Pat Boone Chevy Showroom, 1959.”
Experience Music Project Pop Studies Conference, Seattle, WA. “Talking with Girls about Katy Perry: An Exploration of the Limits of the ‘Appropriate.’”
